Dover Coloring Book

Text Box with description of Book

Plan to take a little time to complete each of these gorgeous, intricate paisley patterns. I found it helpful to mentally develop a color scheme for each one before I actually started coloring, to create the most artistically appealing pictures. This book is best for older children and adults.
    As you can see, I did plan color schemes for my pictures. The first one, from page 2 was actually the last one I colored. I had been toying with the idea of doing one in just black and white (Because I have a black and white paisley dress!), but I just didn't think it would work. Well, by the last picture, I felt I was running out of creative ideas, so I thought, what the hell, give it a try. And it turned out grand, don't you think? For the next one on page 9, I used shades of gray, pink, white, and black, then aimed for a tapestry look with metallic colors for page 13. Page 24 seemed to cry out for pastels, and page 27 was done with neon crayons. For the very last page, I used warm yellow and orange.
